#TBT #ThrowbackThursday a night out…

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday a night out in Malibu.. Might have to head out there again this weekend... —- #Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ Last night I made a quick jaunt to Malibu from a friends house in Reseda.. We headed up to an overlook that Sean Pierce showed me last year and has shot epic shots from in the past... I wanted my own epic shot and it was close to where I was so we headed up around 930... There was another photographer there, but at the time we arrived, a very thick fog started rolling in and they took off.. I decided to be patient and wait it out and sure enough, in about 30 minutes the fog cleared enough to see the Milky Way in all her glory.. It's been quite a while since I have made it out to shoot consistently so I was so thrilled to get an hour in last night... I used the Red Intensifier filter from Hoya to reduce light pollution and it helped a ton! ______ ISO 3200 F2.8 10 seconds 10 images Stacked in SLS for NR @TokinaUSA 11-20 2.8 @SlikUSA 634-CFL @hoyafilterusa Red intensifier @CanonUSA 70d _______ #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #easternsierras #californialiving #californialove #longexposure_shots #nightshooterz #nightshooters #longexposure #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #itsamazingoutthere #nightphotography #malibucanyon #malibucalifornia #malibu

Of all the places I…

Of all the places I wanted to go on our 2 week trip through recently, I told @missjessbess that #GrandPrismaticSprings in Yellowstone was at the top... we ended up six of us deep with @rachel_jones_ross @smpetersonphotography Romen, and @brentdangerrose that night.. we had a blast out there and pretty much had the place to ourselves the entire evening as storm clouds had driven most tourists out around sunset... my image didn’t turn out quite like I wanted as we were racing the rising moon but I’m still happy with it; I love the reflections there.. — This was my second comp for the night and is 20 images for the sky and 12 for the foreground... —— FOREGROUND ISO 10000 F2.8 30 seconds - SKY ISO 10000 F2.8 15 seconds —- @tokinausa 11-16 2.8 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 —- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstonenps #grandprismaticspring #grandprismatic #longexpo #longexposure #longexpoelite #longexposure_shots #longexposhots #longexpohunter #longexposures

I’ve been on this 2…

I’ve been on this 2 week road trip all over the Southwest on a night photo mission with @missjessbess and various others along the way... it hasn’t been all rainbows and sunshine; but there’s been some very incredible, WOW moments a lot of the times and for that I feel so fortunate... I feel very bad for all the people in all the fires right now losing their homes. I just got word yesterday one of my childhood friends homes was saved in the Carr Fire while her 3 neighbors were not. 😢😢 so happy for her but sad for the people around her.. the smoke everywhere we have gone except Colorado has been insane... —— I took this selfie on Thursday night at Rocky Mountain National Park when I headed there with @missjessbess, @xlj_photography, @megavai & Joe.. Apparently we barely missed @michaelsimmonsphotography1 that night! I kept having to do this shot over because this wasn’t right or that wasn’t right... in the end, my analness about getting my shots made my photo come out much better than I imagined and I feel like I’m walking away with what I would deem is a memorable and EPIC shot in spite of how hard I was being on myself about it prior to getting it on my computer... On location, executing a shot like this is more than just setting up a tripod and a timer. —— Thank you to @tenbabags; I love being a part of the team! This Solstice 24L was exactly the bag I needed to compliment my travel gear; it carries the exact same amount of camera equipment that I put in my @ShimodaDesign bag, but just a lot less extra gear that I would need for backpacking trips or whatnot... 2 bodies, 4 lenses, 2 tripods, my star tracked and all of my accessories and lights! —- This image is a total of 49 Stacked and Blended photos; 22 for the sky, 15 for me, and 12 for the water... All stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker. I was running out of time so I didn’t set up my lights, instead I took my iPhone with it’s flashlight on and placed it facedown on the rocks. The light bouncing off the rocks was perfect! —— SKY ISO 10000 F2.8 13 seconds - WATER ISO 10000 F2.8 30 seconds - ME ISO 6400 F2.8 13 seconds —- @tokinausa 11-20mm @ 20 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 Processed in LR & PS —-

See, I do composites! #TBT…

See, I do composites! #TBT to a time when all I did was shoot sweaty naked UFC fighters... this was a composite of @DanHardyMMA I shot in a Gym, with an HDR background I shot at a stadium at USC... I get a lot of people thinkIng I’m anti Composite.. I just want to state that I’m not, I just choose not to do them in my night photos for the most part. I admire others composites all the time! —- . . . . . #tokinausa #slikusa #rsa_night #landscape_captures #beautifuldestinations #earthdeluxe #fantasticearth #earthcapture #wonderfulplaces #natgeo #natgeotravel #canon #canonusa #canonbringit #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #tenbabags #shimoda #shimodadesigns #tenbatough #hoyafilter

Another Box Opening video; this time in Bear Country as you can see from my Bear Spray (wish I had one photobombing me here!) —— Thank you to @HoyafiltersUSA & @tokinausa for sending these out, can’t wait to try them out!! —— The Grand Teton was so gorgeous; I wish I had more time to spend... super jealous of @jjohnson_photography‘s photography’s moose sighting here a few days prior!! —- . . . . . #tokinausa #slikusa #rsa_night #landscape_captures #beautifuldestinations #earthdeluxe #fantasticearth #earthcapture #wonderfulplaces #natgeo #natgeotravel #canon #canonusa #canonbringit #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #tenbabags #shimoda #shimodadesigns #tenbatough #hoyafilters #hoyafilter #hoyafilterusa

When we got out of…

When we got out of the car, drops were already starting to fall and crowds were leaving the area due to the storm clouds overhead.. we didn’t get discouraged and headed out on the boardwalk with the hopes of the clouds breaking and then completely clearing up for stars later that night... well i love it when a plan comes together like this; we got sunset and clear skies for stars that night... I know I rarely post photos other than stars, but doesn’t mean I don’t take them... I just have to be super motivated by a shot to edit it, and this is one of those shots... the composition was a lot taller than this so I used content aware scale to make it fit for IG’s resolution... it was a lovely trip to Yellowstone with my dear friends @missjessbess @rachel_jones_ross @smpetersonphotography & @brentdangerrose... —— Handheld because I didn’t want to move my tripod from my night composition to scope out the rest of the area; I didn’t know the sky was going to color up like this and spontaneously shot this... —— ISO 100 F11 1/10 second @tokinausa 16-28 @ 22 @canonusa 6dmk1 —— #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #sunset #sunset_pics #sunsets #bonnevillesaltflats #sunset_stream #sunset_ig #sunset_vision #sunset_hunter #sunsetlover #sunsetlovers #sunsetlove #sunset_lovers #sunset_lovee

#FBF To a Death Valley…

#FBF To a Death Valley adventure... —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ This was part of my side trip to Death Valley a few weeks ago with my girls @saolybensonphoto & @kaydenphan... we shot the salt flats with the moon over it and then raced to Zabriskie Point and ran up the hill to try and catch the moon before it set so we had light on the hills... we BARELY missed it so I had to shoot separate foreground images... we weren't up there very long but we were fighting wind the entire time.. --- I shot 15 images for the foreground then stacked in photoshop, and 15 for the sky and stacked in Starry Landscape.. --- Foreground - 15 images ISO 6400 F2.8 30 seconds - Sky - 15 images ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds - @tokinausa 11-20mm @ 18mm @slikusa 634-CFL @canonusa 6dmk1 Processed in LR & PS --- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #badwaterbasin #saltflats #deathvalley #dvnp #deathvalleynationalpark #deathvalleynp #deathvalleynps #photopills #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #starrylandscapestacker

Right after this video we chased that storm! I had this box from @tenbabags I wanted to open so we took it to the other side of the tracks! Watch this for photos and video of what’s in this box from Tenba Bags, who is the parent company for my other bag, @shimodadesign! Im excited to use the #Solstice24 (the design is super slick!) for when I don’t need a backpacking pack, and the #RoadieRoller for when I fly! —- Thank you @tenbabags, thrilled to be a part of the team!! Thank you @missjessbess for filming! —— . . . . . #tokinausa #slikusa #rsa_night #landscape_captures #beautifuldestinations #earthdeluxe #fantasticearth #earthcapture #wonderfulplaces #natgeo #natgeotravel #canon #canonusa #canonbringit #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #tenbabags #shimoda #shimodadesigns #tenbatough

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday I didn’t go…

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday I didn’t go here this year because I’ve been on tons of other adventures.. who’s made it down this season? —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ This was from my April trip to Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon.. The waterfalls are such a popular destination that I have been 5 times now... I don't know if I will be going again this year but seeing as I never edited a photo from last years trip that didn't have me in it, I decided to do so today... This was lit by a single lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US Shipping) from the right. I was with a group of 20 friends I had organized and i ended up hiking about 55 miles in 2.5 days trying to explore and shoot the Milky Way around all the falls there... Who has been here??? ---- ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds 10 images stacked in SLS for NR @TokinaUSA 11-20 2.8 @SlikUSA 634-CFL @CanonUSA 70d ---- . . . . . #tokinausa #slikusa #rsa_night #landscape_captures #beautifuldestinations #amazingearth #earthdeluxe #earthpics #earthpix #fantasticearth #earthmagic #earthcapture #wonderfulplaces #havasufalls #havasu #havaupai #natgeo #natgeotravel #canon #canonusa #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik

Friday night had me and…

Friday night had me and @missjessbess in Bryce Canyon at Milky Way Point... with the moon in this phase you have to strategically plan your foreground lighting... so we decided to shoot sunset, then moonlit foregrounds, followed by milkyway after the moon went down. Then Milky Way w/ Lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US shipping) lit foregrounds.. Followed by Milky Way and then blue hour foregrounds and then sunrise... this was the most efficient use of all hours of the night to get the most compositions except the one thing that threw a wrench in the works... the CLOUDS!! —- We got all our foregrounds at all the designated times but were stuck waiting in between for clouds to clear out.. but that meant we ended up with a BANGER sunrise!! All in all, we got 3-4 MW comps, an ok sunset and a killer sunrise.. and NO sleep.. that’s what we Chasers do though, right?? I don’t mind a little clouds because of bloated stars!! —- This was the middle comp of the night using Lume Cubes to light! 20 stacked images.. —— ISO 10000 F2.8 13 seconds —- Processed in LR & PS @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 @canonusa 24-70 @ 24 —- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #longexposure_shots #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure
